It really feels great to have knitting needles in my hands again. My keyboard had taken their place for the past 6 weeks while I worked on the announcement site for Knotions.
I’m busy working on the design for the April article, and those swatches above are just a portion of the ones I’ve knitted. It’s funny — knowing that you all will be relying on me to get it just right has made me look at the swatching process differently. Once I settled on a yarn, I swatched it with several needle sizes and took careful notes of the pre- and post-washing properties.
I also have to say that all your comments and feedback have been so wonderful to read! You’ve motivated me even more, and have given me some great ideas for future articles. Several of you also commented that you had trouble subscribing to Knoted — the Knotions Blog. I’ve cleaned up the RSS confusion now, but here’s a direct link to the feed. You’ll get notified when new articles and patterns are released, and many of my more in-depth technique posts will be over at Knotions now, so I encourage you to add the feed to your subscriptions.

  1. Hello, I know you must be busy with getting Knotions off the ground but I thought I would at least let you know that a Swedish Heart-warmer Shawl KAL has started within Ravelry.
    I think I remember once upon a time you expressed interest in knitting this shawl. If I’m wrong, sorry, and please disregard this comment.
    The KAL is simply a thread within the Stranded Group within Ravelry. Cast-On for most of us will be mid-April but the KAL thread was created yesterday so people have time to acquire supplies and get ready. Join us if you are interested or just keep an eye on the thread and be a ‘spectator’.
